The most recent box office smash from director Mani Ratnam, Ponniyin Selvan I has made a significant contribution to the industry's resurgence. The year has been amazing for Tamil films. Box office revenues increased across the state as a result of all the unmet requests during the lockdown, providing stakeholders with a much-needed break. Ponniyin Selvan was a significant wager made by Mani Ratnam. It wasn't just the director's most ambitious film; it was also the most expensive in his forty-year career. Ratnam kept his solemn narration style and refused to compromise his vision in order to make this film look accessible to a wider audience, despite the huge production costs.
Ponniyin Selvan makes its way toward the 450 crore mark worldwide
The cost of making PS:1 has not been disclosed by the film's creators very openly. In a single 150-day stretch, Mani Ratnam and his crew of talented filmmakers shot both halves of the movie. And mounting such large-scale manufacturing in such a short amount of time is unprecedented. But it resulted in significant financial savings for the producers. According to certain media sources, this movie would have cost between Rs. 400 billion and Rs. 500 billion to produce. And on Thursday, Lyca Production said that the movie's worldwide ticket sales had brought in more than Rs 400 crore. The movie's box office performance is also showing no signs of slowing down thanks to the holiday.
Mani Ratnam’s masterpiece beats Kamal Haasan’s Vikram
PS:1 has maintained a significant number of screens in Tamil Nadu even in its third week. According to reports, despite the fact that two major films, Prince and Sardar, are about to hit theatres during Deepavali, many theatres want to keep showing this one. According to reports, PS:1 is currently in its third week of release on roughly 500 theatres in Tamil Nadu. At this rate, PS: 1 will quickly surpass Vikram, the most recent blockbuster from Kamal Haasan, which has a lifetime worldwide gross estimated at Rs 430 crore.
